Welcome to the 2019 Untapped Energy reCLAIM Data Competition!

This competition is split into three separate sections, each meant to provide an opportunity to learn and execute best practices in data modelling and machine learning, using real world oil and gas datasets. The sections are as follows:

1) Quantitative Challenge#1: Classification and Clustering Analysis

http://tiny.cc/classification

In the Classification challenge you are tasked with training a machine learning process to identify the status of a well, given a set of characteristics from its operating profile. Your target vector to predict is ‘well_class_train’, which represents the status of a given well.

You will be scored according to the F1 score of your model.

 

2) Quantitative Challenge #2: Regression Analysis


http://tiny.cc/regression1

In the Regression challenge, you are tasked with training a process to predict the initial production of a given well.

*Note that you will need to join the regression train file against the WellHeader file to get your data columns to train against.

You will be scored according to the F1 score of your model.

 

3) Qualitative Challenge: Discussion and Presentation

After completing submissions for the above, you will be tasked with submitting a 5 min video tohttp://tiny.cc/reCLAIM1 to fulfil the qualitative component of the competition. In the video, you should discuss the model you used to achieve your result, its benefits and short-falls, and the implications of your findings for industry stakeholders and future research.

Terms and Conditions

One account per participant

You cannot sign up to Codalab from multiple accounts and therefore you cannot submit from multiple accounts.

Use of Automated Machine Learning Tools (AMLT)

This Competition permits the use of automated machine learning tool(s) (“AMLT”) in the creation of Submissions. AMLT Teams are not eligible to win any prizes.

A. COMPETITION-SPECIFIC RULES

In addition to the provisions of the General Competition Rules below, you understand and agree to these Competition-Specific Rules required by the Competition Sponsor:

WINNERS LICENSE.

Under Section 11 (Winners Obligations) of the General Rules below, you hereby grant and will grant Competition Sponsor the following license(s) with respect to your Submission if you are a Competition winner:

Open Source: You hereby license and will license your winning Submission and the source code used to generate the Submission under an Open Source Initiative-approved license (see www.opensource.org) that in no event limits commercial use of such code or model containing or depending on such code.

GOVERNING LAW.

The following supersedes section 21 below: “All claims arising out of or relating to these Rules will be governed by Alberta law, excluding its conflict of laws rules, and will be litigated exclusively in the Federal or Provincial courts of Alberta, Canada. The parties consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts. If any provision of these Rules is held to be invalid or unenforceable, all remaining provisions of the Rules will remain in full force and effect.”

AUTOMATED MACHINE LEARNING TOOLS (AMLT).

This competition permits the use of automated machine learning tool(s) (“AMLT”) in the creation of Submissions. Except as described in this section, AMLT are not permitted to be used in the creation of a Submission.

A. Submission as an AMLT

An individual or team may make a Submission as an AMLT (each individual or team making a submission as an AMLT, a “AMLT Team”). The AMLT Team must be authorized to make such Submission by the owner(s) of the AMLT (including all rights in the AMLT). AMLT Teams must declare themselves as such by submitting the following form prior to making a Submission: info@untappedenergy.ca. Submissions made by an AMLT Team will be marked as benchmarks (highlighted and named to match the AMLT Team name) on the Competition’s public leaderboard and, like all Submissions, cannot be removed or revoked once submitted.

The following provision is added to the end of Section 2 of the General Competition Rules below: “AMLT Teams may enter and participate in the Competition, but are not eligible to win any Prizes.”

The following provision is added to the end of Section 6 of the General Competition Rules below: “D. AMLT Teams. If you submit a Submission to this Competition as an AMLT Team, you cannot also submit as an individual user or as a team. Violation may result in your disqualification from the Competition and removal from the Competition leaderboard, at the Competition Sponsor's sole discretion. AMLT Teams are not permitted to enter into a Team merger.”

B. Using an AMLT to create a submission

Individual participants and Teams may also use an AMLT to create a Submission, provided that the participant ensures that they have an appropriate license to the AMLT and are able to comply with the Rules.

In order to have your submission qualify for judging and receive scoring towards your overall score, submit your final results for the Quantiative Challenges by: November 1, 2019 11:59 PM UTC. through the Codalab website

In order to have your submission qualify for judging and receive scoring towards your overall score, submit your video for the Qualitative Challenge by:   November 17, 2019, 11:59pm UTC through the submission link: http://tiny.cc/reCLAIM2

This competition is broken into two main sections, designed to test your ability to model real world oil and gas data. From there, you will be challenged to explain the implications of your findings, and discuss how they can be leveraged towards improving industry’s ability to address the issue of inactive well building up in Western Canada. 

 

1.       Quantitative Challenges - Predictive Modelling Component 
In this section of the competition you are tasked with building two machine learning or artificial intelligence models that will be able to classify and predict different aspects of real world well data, provided by JWN Energy. 

a.       Classification Model 
The first test is to build a model that will correctly predict the status of a well as being either active, suspended, or abandoned.  

b.       Regression Model 
The second test is to build a model that will correctly predict the initial oil, gas, and water production of a well targeting any point along the AB or SK Viking formation.  

2.       Qualitative Challenge: Model and Data Interpretation 
The second part of the competition will require you create a short video that proves your understanding of both the data you have been provided, and the models you have deployed for the Quantitative Challenges. Participants are encouraged to leverage best practices in visualization and model interpretation in a way that allows for a succinct case that is both intelligent and accessible to educated outsiders. This presentation should also detail an innovative way for industry stakeholders to make use of your findings to identify and manage forward-looking abandonment risks. This section can be completed in a number of ways, for example: a business plan, a letter of recommendation to the AER, an open-source software specification, etc.  

Judging Framework 

Scores for each section of the competition will be assigned as a combination of the Quantitative Challenges leaderboards, and Qualitative Challenge video submission:
